The Flavorpill Guide to DIY Pop Culture Halloween Costumes: Books

Lena Dunham

The book world has been abuzz this past week with the news of Lena Dunham’s $3.7 million advance for her forthcoming book of advice. Some critics think Dunham totally deserves (and are incredibly jealous), others are scandalized by the extravagance (and are incredibly jealous) — whichever camp you fall into, you can feel a little less jealous for one night dressed up as Dunham covered in money.

The costume:

Pixie cut wig (if necessary) — $19, Amazon
Ironic sweatshirt — thrift stores
Play money to throw in the air/light on fire/affix to your body — $4, The Learning Bug
Whatever else you have on
